One mission that many people don’t savour having to complete is the selling of an old car. There is a wealth of different tasks that require finishing, and you aren’t even guaranteed a decent pay-out when all is said and done. It is even more of a hassle when the vehicle you are trying to sell is considered to be a scrap car. The difficulty level reaches absurd levels in this case. After all, would you buy a car that has permanently broken down?
However, there are solutions to every problem, including this one. This is all thanks to the existence of the companies who offer broken car removals. They get the scrap vehicles that they recycle by buying them from people. Some of them even provide free removal straight after paying you cash on the spot for the vehicle in question.
If you think that your vehicle is in fact a JUNK, and will never drive again, this is your best bet. But you may want to confirm this fact before-hand. It may just need some simple repairs that will not cost you too much money. Here is how to ascertain whether or not your car is indeed truly a vehicle of the scrap kind.
Minor repairs don’t cost a lot of money. A small fender bender isn’t reason enough to seek the quick disposal of a car. But having a car be the victim of a big crash will often result in the ride being completely totalled.
Having it repaired is usually more costly than the amount that it is worth in these cases. Then there are other major problems that will effect just one central component such as the engine or transmission. The resulting discrepancy between car worth and repair cost exacts the same conclusion: A scrap car that needs to be repaired.
The third in this trifecta of bad luck is the vehicle that has gotten so old that parts are failing left right and centre. This isn’t really bad luck though. More often it is age that has visited itself upon your unfortunate set of wheels.
When a vehicle has reached that last stage of its career when it has taken on the label “scrap”, you will not be able to drive it anywhere. It is now a useless assemblage of metal parts, rubber and glass that has taken up residence on your property. You must not give in to procrastination when this situation rears its ugly head. There is no place on your property that should ever be home to a car that has no use.
If you have put the vehicle in question on the market for sale, and not a single person is interested in buying it, this tells you something. Especially if it has been months or a year. If you live in Christchurch, Canterbury or anywhere in the South Island, NZ, you need to call us here at Taha Car Buyers and we will buy it off you fast and for good money!
